Davis Campus

(Brampton)

For the Winter 2021 semester, this program will be delivered through a hybrid model that combines remote and in-person learning. View delivery modes for all programs.

Become qualified to assist electronics engineers in just two years.

Program Overview

Electronics engineering courses that begin with the basics

Become a job-ready electronics engineering technician in just two years! In your first year, you’ll learn fundamental skills and concepts in electricity, electronics, digital principles, computers and programming. You’ll then apply that knowledge in your second year of studies. As a graduate, you’ll understand design, creation and operation of electronic devices, circuits and systems.

Practical curriculum taught by expect professors

Our faculty know what today’s employers are looking for. Many of our professors hold PhDs and PEng certification, and their years of industry experience shape curriculum that is very practical in nature. Your theory studies will be supported by hands-on learning opportunities in our labs, which are constantly updated with the latest technological trends.

Work towards your advanced diploma or other certifications

When you graduate, you can enter the workforce or go directly into the third year of our Electronics Engineering Technology program. You’ll also have completed all academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT). Many of our grads develop their own businesses or work as freelance consultants.

Explore your future classroom

As an Electronics Engineering Technician student, you’ll work in labs designed to imitate the real-world workplace. Want a preview? Take a virtual tour of our Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design.
